We recently chatted with Ian Agrimis about point, miles and all things Europe. Lucky for you we snagged him for the scoop on his latest adventure through Asia. 

"My passion for traveling grew out of a profound love for aviation. I loved planes, airports and the whole traveling experience from the moment I started traveling by air at a very young age. Fast forward a number of years and I was in college in LA and could see all these big planes flying in to LAX from all over the world, I started thinking that I really needed to get onboard one of these magnificent machines and fly somewhere far outside the US border (which I had done, but it had been a long time). However, since I was in college and had limited funds for far flung international air travel, I discovered the ability to use credit cards to earn tons of miles and points which could be redeemed for aspirational travel experiences." says Ian. Fast forward again, after a number of successful trips financed almost entirely with miles, he was hooked. Couple the passion for traveling with a growing interest in video production, Ian started making videos each time he would go somewhere so that he could share those experiences with others. Documenting his experiences became second nature and sharing his tips and tricks eventually evolved into his new company, Capture Unlimited. Keep scrolling for the deets on of his latest adventure.

What prompted this trip?

Ian: This recent trip to Asia was prompted by a sudden realization that there would be a significant amount of time that everyone was free and that the next time that might be the case was unknown. A few calls to a travel agent confirmed space was available on this river boat during the same time everyone was free and the rest is history.

Live Out Your Most Unique Tropical Fantasies with a Stay at an Underwater Suite

We’ve all dreamed about life under the sea. Catchy Disney songs aside, we’ve grown up fantasizing about holding our breaths longer—or simply being able to breathe like a fish—so we could stay the cool wilderness of an underwater world. Such a power would give us the opportunity to explore deep sea caves, witness existence in the depths of the ocean, behold some of the most colorful wildlife on the planet, and meditate in an expansive, noiseless, and relaxing space. This week’s #BirthdayBucketList is about finally making good on that wild hope.

At The Manta Resort on Tanzania’s Pemba Island, you get the closest you ever will to your wish. Here, you can stay underwater for hours, days, or weeks! That's because off the coast is a breathtaking underwater room of windows with a very soft bed in it. Turquoise waves roll around the Swedish-engineered floating structure just above the reef floor, and you get to be a part of it. You get to live underwater without having to worry about oxygen levels. Simply put, it’s the hotel room we’ve always dreamed of, ever since we were kids.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

 

This week’s #BirthdayBucketList is New York City’s favorite oyster bar. Where to score the best oysters in the Big Apple is debatable, but as far as ambiance goes, it’s downright impossible to beat Grand Banks Oyster Bar—and that’s because it’s hosted on a revitalized mid-century wooden ship known as the Sherman Zwicker.

Watching a sunset sink its fiery skin into the ocean from the New York City waterfront should be—and likely is—on everyone's bucket list. In the warmer seasons, is there a better way to appreciate the good life than toasting your friends or family with a rich blend of grand colors before you and the greatest city skyline ever behind you? No, probably not. Plus, there’s a cocktail menu and oysters!

Bluff-side Elegance
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

We’ve found the Southern glory land of giant oak trees, adorable little houses with giant front porches, and plenty of charming hospitality. The best part? You can get married right smack dab in the middle of this romantic South Carolina getaway.

Montage Palmetto Bluff is situated on 20,000 acres of pristine South Carolina coastal marsh. There are about 50 little cottages making up the luxury resort, all saddled up right to nature’s doorstep. Days here are spent fly-fishing, biking through the trails, paddling down the river, horseback riding, and doing just about any other outdoor activity you can think of. And if hanging out in a rocking chair with a good book is more your speed, that’s always an option too.

Since nearly everything Tara Guerard Soiree gets her hands on designing ends up on wedding Pinterest inspiration boards around the world, we were thrilled to be able to chat with her about this gorgeous wedding she did at Montage Palmetto Bluff. With Corbin Gurkin behind the lens on these photos, we can’t imagine a more beautiful capture of this lush, historic property.
